We stayed here for one night to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary. Absolutely loved it! Could not have asked for anything more. We arrived early (11am), not expecting our room to be ready but the lovely lady on reception said we could go on up. She also said they had arranged a surprise for us. We had booked a standard...

First of all, I can not even say enough good things about this hotel!!! I wish it had all five stars (and dont know why) so I would have found it sooner on tripadvisor. It is truly the best!!!!

Location is excellent, staff is unbelievably helpful. Hotel is very off the radar in an amazing part of London (Knightsbridge). Close to the tube, so work was easy - close to the sites and nightlife so fun was easy. Hotel has no bar or restaurant, would I would argue is the only downside. Bathrooms are AMAZING.

We stayed at Parkes as part of a treat for my parents Golden Wedding Anniversary. I have stayed at Parkes several times previously and one thing I knew about them was that I could rely on this hotel not to let us down for a one-off celebratory weekend. Sure enough Parkes did not let us down. Once again we were... More

We (7 of us) have just got home after a 2 night family stay at the Parkes Hotel and it was fantastic.....honestly, I couldn't recommend it highly enough. It was a special occasion and they made the weekend even more memorable with their excellent service. We found and booked this hotel as a 60th birthday treat for our parents. Our... More

Very welcoming and nice staff. We had a 1 bed suite (room 44). Bedroom tiny but sitting room a better size with tiny kitchen (fridge, microwave, etc.). Great minibar. Great location and definitely stay there again, possibly in a room with an outside terrace. M & K, Edinburgh

We stayed at the Parkes in London in late October. The hotel is loced in the heart of Kensington, in quite street near Harrods. The property is a period residence, however is really past its prime and needs restoration. Both rooms we were in had problems. For the money I think there are much better options unless the location is... More

We have just returned from a short stay at this boutique hotel, which is just a few short strides from Harrods - so not so far to carry all those bags back - before looking for the next purchase. It is magnificent and we have never experienced such caring service before. The rooms are huge and lavishly decorated, indeed they... More

Staying in Knightsbridge

Neighbourhood Profile
When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop, they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this city's cosiest pubs, quiet gardens, and all sorts of indie retailers and enterprises worth a short exercise in spontaneous window shopping. For those looking to take a break from shopping, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and some of the city's most popular museums are nearby.
